Ahem: if it's only slow on some project but fast on similar sized
projects then there's another reason. And the solution to that is one
you might not like: a fresh checkout.
The reason that some projects get slower is that if the filedates change
but not the contents, then Subversion has to go through the whole file,
reading each byte up to the end of that file to check if it was really
modified or not. That's how Subversion determines the status of a file.
If the filedate hasn't changed, then Subversion assumes that the file
isn't modified and doesn't read it byte by byte.
